The United Workers Party (UWP) heads to Londonderry on Sunday to celebrate its 25th anniversary rally in what party officials describe as a “defining event in the political history of Dominica.”
Party leader, Lennox Linton, said the rally will give Dominicans from all walks of life the opportunity to be part of “living Caribbean history.”
“Those of us who were at the Great Londonderry Rally in 1988, when the UWP was launched, have the opportunity to bring our children, grand children and extended family to commemorate with us, with the first political leader Hon. Edison James, and with the new generation UWP team, in one of the greatest political events in the history of Dominica,” he said.
The theme of the rally, is, ‘Change is a must, Together we will.’
Speakers will include James, Guy Joseph from the UWP in St. Lucia, Leon “Chaku” Symster, Chairman of United Progressive Party of Antigua, (UPP) and party leaders.
Speeches will also be heard from the UWP’s youth arm, its women’s organization and “members of the old and new UWP team.”
Dominica’s own WCK will perform, along with Club DVD, calypsonians and local cultural groups.
“Londonderry will be another giant step by the people up to the mountain top to victory,” Linton said.
